We didn’t have an ask the grumpies thing queued this week because it has been a crazy insane week, but I have an emergency question!
DH stepped on my old school Kindle 3– the kind with the side page turners (which I love) and the keyboard. If money is no object, should I get the Voyage, the Paperwhite, the currently-offered no frills kind, or a used ebay replacement? (Amazon no longer sells refurbished Kindle 3s and the replacement screens are no longer available for sale anywhere. We tried all the recommended kindle rebooting things and they erased the stuck picture but it still no longer shows new text.) If money is an object, what would you get? Anybody have personal experience with multiple kindles?
I don’t have an answer to this. The replacement kindle 3 is $35 (including S+H) but sold “as-is” from a 99.4% satisfaction store that has sold 45 of them so far. The no-frills is $99 without ads. The Paperwhite is $139. The Voyage is $219.
Like I said, I really like the side page turners, but I haven’t tried reading with the screen touch, so it might be fine. I am also skeptical of lighting, but again, haven’t tried it so it might be fine. I don’t want to see how much time the kindle things I have left– I liked the percentage left options, but I might get used to it. Basically I’m scared of changing up something I like for something that might irritate me. But it might be fine! Is it fine?
Thanks in advance for your help. I need to keep reading She (free on kindle!– also the origin of the honorific “She who must be obeyed”). Analysis paralysis is not fun at all.
